"Not for the weak at heart, this one is a sweet chicken and fruit soup from Algeria. You must serve with a crusty baguette to soak up the sweet and tangy broth."

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook the onion in the oil until it has softened and turned translucent, about 4 minutes. Stir in the raisins, apricots, lemon zest, lemon juice, and water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 5 minutes. Add the apples, and cook about 5 minutes longer until the apples soften. Season with additional cinnamon, salt, and pepper if desired. Stir in the shredded chicken before serving.

This was awesome soup ... different but very good ... i didn't use the raisins (I hate raisins) and i used olive oil ... it was sweet but not too sweet.
